Nakia Posted January 27, 2011 Share Posted January 27, 2011 I know someone did. Well, you lied. :lol: She has been 5 for 28 days, and she is still loud and wiggly and hyper and into EVERYTHING!!!! Of course, she is also dancing and singing and happy and sweet as pie! But whoa nellie, she wears me out!!! She is often disobedient and so rowdy. I know she is still very little, and we are working on it. My other two were just not like this (though, of course, they have their own "stuff"). I think she is part boy, lol. Now, what exactly do you do with a chid who is naturally really loud? I am loud and several of my family members are loud, but I tell you, Cora can quiet a room. She is just soooooooo loud!! I CONSTANTLY remind her to use her inside voice, and she does, for about one sentence. I try to keep her focused, but it's like trying to focus Dorrie from Finding Nemo. There is something else that is kinda nagging at me about her. She is constantly climbing on people and has her hands on them all.the.time. For example, she adores her Aunt Stephanie, and when Stephanie is around, Cora cannot keep her hands off her. She is constantly touching her hair and jewelry and climbing on her and LOUDLY talking to her nonstop. I know it makes Stephanie crazy after a while, and I pull Cora away or try to get her to sit calmly beside Steph, but I hate fussing at her the whole time. And she will do it the whole time Steph is here, even if it's 3 hours. Stephanie does remind her to calm down and talk quietly and she will also say, "You can sit on my lap, but you can't climb on me", so that is helpful for Cora to hear it from her. I tell you, this child is INTENSE!!! Any advice? I feel like I've been asking for a lot of advice lately. Parenting is certainly not for wimps. Does this sound like normal 5 year old behavior? Like I said, my others didn't act this way. Patrick and I joke that we thought we were such good parents until Cora came along. :lol: Or could it be something more serious? Feel free to ask for clarification about anything I've posted if it would be helpful in giving me advice or suggestions. Thanks!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
